The light armoured 4×4 vehicle, with a weight of 7 tons and a power load of 2.5 tons, totalling a maximum weight of 9.5 tons. The ballistic protection of the vehicle interior is at least Level 1, according to STANAG 4569, and the protection against explosions is at least Level 2a (according to STANAG 4569).
The VLAH project is developed in partnership with Zetor Engineering. The running gear of the vehicle is produced according to a German model from MTU Friedrichshafen GmbH.
